Twyford & Ruscombe Cricket Club offers cricket coaching for boys and girls in school years 1 to 10.

All sessions are fun, full of active participation and provide gently progressive drills and technical exercises as well as small sided games that serve to introduce and improve basic cricket skills.  We are always keen to recruit more youngsters to the squads as well as additional coaches and helpers.  All are given a very warm welcome.

We offer both friendly and competitive league fixtures and this year our U9, U11, U13 and U15 are all in the Berkshire Youth Cricket League.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Nic Downes (Youth Coordinator) on 07785 738655 or

Coaching Team

We have 4 ECB Qualified Level 2 coaches and 1 more due to complete qualification early this spring.  We also have a further 7 ECB Level 1 qualified coaches to provide excellent coaching across all age groups.  Each age group is led by a Level 2 coach.

A big plus for the Colt section is the significant number of parent helpers who are happy to get involved and support the coaches at the training and net sessions.
